The NASA-JSC SMART-OP study investigates the effectiveness of a self-guided, multimedia stress management and resilience-training program (SMART-OP) with a sample flight and mission controllers, at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Dr. Rose serves as co-I on the Reaching Independence Through Successful Employment Study (RISE), which works in collaboration with Jewish Vocational Services (JVS) to evaluate the effects of computer-assisted treatment for social anxiety.

Prior to coming to UCLA, Dr. Rose completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Dartmouth Medical School in Anxiety Disorders and Behavioral Medicine and received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Hofstra University. His research interests include incorporating technology to train clinicians and clients to apply evidenced-based approaches (e.g., CBT) to manage anxiety, stress, and depression and achieve peak performance through building resilience. Dr. Rose has a private practice specializing in treating anxiety, stress, and related disorders, and in training resilience in Los Angeles, CA.
